I LOVED taking photos of all the girls in their gorgeous dresses and seeing the culmination of all their planning! It was FREEZING cold (44 degrees and breezy) but the girls toughed it out and smiled despite their goosebumps!
This year - both daughters are in high school so it was double the fun and double the busy-ness. And we dashed from one house to another so I could take photos of both groups of friends!
During homecoming week, every day is a designated dress up day. It goes something like this ... Arrive home from work and 2 girls meet me at the door who "NEED to go to Target". They love when I say, "No you don't, go to your closet and get creative!" (Don't try this at home, it can cause teenage angst.)
My personal favorites were 80's day and Nerd day. "Mom - can I go through your closet to look for mom jeans? Can I go through your closet to look for dorky clothes?" Why would they think I have mom jeans or dorky clothes????
Finally Saturday arrives ...
